Team Touchstone is a youth climbing program dedicated to training the next generation of climbers. Our athletes develop the technique, strength, and confidence required for competitive climbing in a fun and rigorous team environment. From young climbers just getting their start in the sport to those ready to compete on a national level, Team Touchstone has something for kids of all ages looking to challenge themselves.
Team Touchstone athletes are ultimately encouraged to progress through the levels of our program and participate in climbing competitions. Climbers who demonstrate a high level of climbing ability and interest in competition may be invited to join our Competitive Team.
Want to join Team Touchstone? Here are a few things to consider:
- Our teams are based on ability level, not age.
- We’re a sports team. Regular attendance is required and our athletes are encouraged to purchase team shirts to wear during practice and competitions.
- Our program is for youth who want to grow as competitive climbers and be part of a tight-knit team. For those who are looking for a less structured social climbing experience, our kids camps may be a better fit; visit our Climbing Camps page for information and availability.
- Our teams run year-round. Registration can occur at any time throughout the year and does not reset annually or seasonally.
We currently only offer our Intermediate Team level at LA Boulders, and an interest in competitive climbing is supported and encouraged.
The Intermediate Team is designed to provide a challenging training environment for climbers who want to become more serious about the sport. This team focuses on advanced technique, strength, and strategy development while still providing a fun, social climbing experience. Climbers on this team have at least 1-2 years of climbing experience and attend competitions with our Competitive Team. Climbers from the Intermediate Team may eventually be invited to join the Competitive Team once they have demonstrated the requisite technical proficiency and level of commitment. Tryouts or coach recommendation are required to join the Intermediate Team.
